Information required/guidance 

Some hedgerows are protected under the hedgerow regulations (1997) and removing them could incur a fine up to £5,000.

If a hedgerow removal notice is submitted, the following information will be required:

  • a plan (preferably 1:2,500 scale) clearly identifying the hedgerow to be removed
  • the reasons for removal
  • evidence the hedge is less than 30 years old
  • a statement advising if you are the owner, tenant or manager of the hedgerow, or relevant utility company eligible to remove it
